Bio-Implants for Sports Medicine Procedures

Ligaments, tendons, and bone allografts are frequently used in knee and shoulder applications.  Our allograft bioimplants are clinically proven in a variety of surgical applications.  As a result, we are the world's most trusted provider of transplant solutions, allograft bio-implants, and cellular therapies.  Since 1995, more than 6 million tissue grafts have been distributed with no disease transmission using Allowash XG® technology.

Note: Not all bio-implants are available for distribution in every country.

Description
FlexiGraft tendons can be used in ACL and PCL reconstructions, as well as other soft tissue applications
  • Convenience: No recovery of the patient’s own tissue allows for operating room efficiency. Grafts are available in several lengths and diameters and allow for various fixation techniques.
  • Patient-Friendly: Eliminates donor site morbidity and associated pain from autograft recovery. This makes the procedure less invasive and potentially decreases OR time. Less OR time can mean less time under anesthesia and less tourniquet time.
  • Sterile: Tendons are sterilized using proprietary and patented Allowash XG® technology. This provides a sterility assurance level (SAL) of 10-6, without compromising the construct’s inherent biomechanical properties.
Clinical Application
  • ACL & PCL Reconstruction
  • MCL, LCL & MPFL Reconstruction
  • Posterior Lateral Corner Reconstruction
  • Ankle Ligament Reconstruction
  • A-C Joint Reconstruction

•  Increased Safety: Sterile with a SAL of 10-6 means lower risk of disease transmission

•  Decellularized: Uses Matracell® technology to remove ≥ 97% DNA and cellular remnants to decrease likelihood of immune response1,4

•  Promotes Rapid Healing: Biocompatible and retains natural growth factors, collagen and elastin1,4

•  Convenient: Preservon® technology allows graft to be stored fully hydrated at room temperature (15°C - 30°C) so it can be used right out of the package, without lengthy OR reconstitution processes1,4

•  Versatility: Available in multiple sizes and thicknesses

Description

ArthroFlex® SCR is a specific size of acellular dermal matrix designed specifically for the Superior Capsular Reconstruction surgical technique. Biomechanical testing shows the graft restores glenohumeral joint stability and subacromial contact characteristics.1,2

• Strong – High ultimate load to failure and sutures will not easily pull through graft.3

• Safe – Sterile with a SAL of 10-6 and shown to resist infection.4

• Decellularized – Uses Matracell® technology to remove DNA and cellular remnants to decrease likelihood of an immune response.

• Promotes rapid healing – Biocompatible (≥ 97% of DNA removed) and retains natural growth factors, collagen and elastin.

• No re-hydration needed – Supplied pre-hydrated and ready for use.

• Convenient storage – Room temperature (15 - 30˚C).

Description

ArthroFlex® BioWasher® is a smaller-sized acellular dermal matrix intended for suture reinforcement in soft tissue repairs, such as the rotator cuff.

Smaller Size: Easily passes through surgical portal for implantation in arthroscopic procedures.
 
Increased Safety: Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10-6 means lower risk of disease transmission.
 
Decellularized: Uses Matracell® technology to remove ≥97% of DNA and cellular remnants to decrease likelihood of immune response.1
 
Promotes Rapid Healing: Biocompatible and retains natural growth factors, collagen and elastin. Addresses most common mode of failure by reinforcing suture-tendon interface.2
 
Convenient: Preservon® technology allows graft to be stored fully hydrated at room temperature (15°C - 30°C) so it can be used right out of the package, without lengthy OR reconstitution processes.

Description
FlexiGraft GraftLink is a pre‑sutured tendon construct that is indicated for soft tissue approximation and/ or ligation. It can be used for ACL reconstruction procedures.

This product is not available in all markets

  • Convenience: No prep time or timely harvest of autograft required, no training for staff necessary. An out-of-the-box option for OR efficiency.
  • Consistency: Trained technicians suturing graft for construct consistency. Removes the variability between surgical assistants or physician assistants preparing the tendon.
  • Appropriate Strength for ACL: Biomechanical testing demonstrated that GraftLink pre-sutured tendons have greater ultimate load than unstitched tendons. Testing also showed that tibial side fixation was stronger than traditional interference screw.1
  • Compatible: Construct was designed by Arthrex® to be used with their GraftLink All-Inside® Technique. Specialized tools, fixation, and guides have already been developed and are in use by surgeons today.
  • Patient-Friendly: Construct eliminates donor site morbidity and associated pain from autograft harvest. This makes the procedure less invasive and potentially decreases OR time. Less OR time can mean less time under anesthesia and less tourniquet time.
  • Sterile: GraftLink is sterilized using proprietary and patented Allowash XG® technology. This provides a sterility assurance level (SAL) of 10-6, without compromising the construct’s inherent​ biomechanical properties.
